this house is perfect

This house is perfect. The beach is glorious right there on your doorstep. It’s perfect for kids with the swimming pool right there by the beach, they can just run between the two. Plenty of Palm trees for shade, or you can pull your lounger out to sit in the sun. Nice hotels with restaurants within walking distance on the beach from the house. I loved the way the house was decorated with nice colourful local artwork and pieces. We felt very well looked after by Bernardino and Maria on site, Nick on email, and Rhett the manager in the area.


best vrbo ever

Best VRBO Ever!

House and pool and beach are so perfect it is really hard to want to leave to do any exploring. Great to have fabulous restaurants just minutes away. Make sure you have Bernardino and Maria cook for you!


the private beach is a dream

Casa Rosa is a very clean and beautiful villa. 100% equipped with everything you need to take a vacation without complications. The beds are very comfortable, which was important for us. We had no problems with small animals in the villa, there were none. Bernadino and Maria greeted us every morning with a friendly smile and small talk and were very in the background but still there, which we found nice. The two cooked us delicious food, thank you! The terrace with the pool and direct access to the private beach is a dream ? on the beach you can easily go into the water and swim out or use the two kayaks. The coral reef protects against larger aquatic animals, one more thing we felt safe at all times and Noel the night watchman was very pleasant and made us beautiful figures out of palm leaves, thank you. It was the most beautiful vacation we’ve ever had and we want to say thank you! We would love to come back!


jewel of tulum

Casa Rosa is without doubt the jewel of Tulum. The views are breathtaking, the space exceptional, the touches personal, the staff exemplary and the location unbeatable. Get yourself a hire car and live the dream at this beachside home. There is nothing to fault. It is flawless and makes the perfect base for a Tulum holiday. Tulum beach hotels are pretentious; putting style above substance. Casa Rosa feels like it is yours as soon as you walk through the door and I hope your family vacation at this jewel is as amazing as ours was.


great time at Casa Rosa

Again we had a great time at Casa Rosa! Might have been my best time, we dove almost every day. Two night dives which were the best, even dove casa cenote. Weather was perfect as always, Sarrgasum was minimal, which has never effected our stay. We certainly want to come back next year and do it again. Trying to find two more couples to come with us again. Just four of us this year. Thanks again for allowing us to stay at Casa Rosa.


it was perfect

We loved it. Maria and Bernardino were great. Their cooking was unbelievable. We would love to come back many, many times. The oceanside pool was all we could ask for. The kids had a great time and didn’t want to leave. Thanks a million. It was perfect.


paradise indeed

Paradise indeed!

We stayed at Casa Rosa with our 2 daughters and 2 small grand-daughters, and all of us had a really good time. The house was exactly as advertised, very comfortable and well-equipped, and really peaceful. It is indeed paradise! Bernardino, the caretaker, and Maria, the housekeeper, were really great, always very helpful, and the meal they prepared for us at our request one evening was really delicious and not to be missed. It does make a difference having someone there if you need them, and Bernardino is great – discreet but always available. It’s also reassuring to have Noel, the security guard, outside every night as it is such a quiet location. It is difficult to imagine how this wonderful place could be any better.


pictures do not do justice

We just arrived home yesterday – had to send you a note to thank you for the wonderful stay at Casa Rosa. Loved everything about it. We had a group of 7 adults and there was plenty of room for us all & easy to get some privacy also. The pictures we had seen prior to our arrival do not do justice. There is no way to capture the beauty of Casa Rosa & Tankah Bay without experiencing it in person. My first walk to the beach brought tears to my eyes! You are truly blessed to own such a piece of paradise. Thank you for sharing. Maria and Bernardino are gems. We will definitely be return visitors.

Thanks again,


the house is perfect

We had a fabulous stay at Casa Rosa. This is about our 8th vacation rental and your tropical home ranks right up there. The beach is beautiful. The house perfect. The staff great. Thanks again for sharing your piece of paradise with us.


home away from home

We really enjoyed our stay – your house is perfect and we appreciate your effort to make Casa Rosa such a lovely and comfortable home away from home. It had everything you could possibly need.


beautiful slice of paradise

Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us here in Tankah. You have a beautiful slice of paradise here! We never got our honeymoon in 1983 and waiting until now was worth it. This was also the first trip without our 3 sons…It was almost too quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about this part of Mexico, so much that we plan to visit again with our boys. Your staff, security and the locals here are so warm & friendly to us. It’s nice to see that in such a hectic, busy world. Again, thank you so much!


hang out seaside

We had a wonderful time in your magnificent, calming place. Our kids and my brother’s kids really developed a thing for Noel, taking him cookies and coffee each night. They brought home little bracelets and grasshoppers that Noel fashioned from the plant fronds. Also, we hired Bernardino and Maria for a night of cooking, which was delicious. And, I perfected my skills at happy hour margaritas. What more can I say? It was just great to hang out seaside.


warm & inviting

Our stay at Casa Rosa was outstanding. We had a wonderful time visiting with family and as we did have a chance to see other houses in Tankah, we were happy to have chosen your place. The palm trees on the beach gave us and the children plenty of shade during the hot days. The pool quickly became the central gathering place and was a very nice addition. Both Maria and Bernardino were always very pleasant and we enjoyed learning about things from them. The children loved exploring and catching fiddler and hermit crabs. The waters right off the beach were warm and inviting – everyone loved snorkeling and just sitting in the water. Our family is considering making this trip a biennial event. Hopefully Casa Rosa will be available next time we want to come to Mexico!

Thank you,


beautiful home

Hi Sloane,

We got back from Mexico late Monday night despite the snows in the northeast after a truly wonderful vacation in the Yucatan. Your house is beautiful. It was perfect for our family and our grandchildren loved it. We felt we really only scratched the surface of all the offerings of the Yucatan and would love to come back at another time. We particularly loved kayaking in Sian Ka’an Nature Preserve. Our guide, Miguel, was fabulous and we saw so many birds and a crocodile lounging within feet of feeding great blue herons. He also recommended the most beautiful cenote we swam in. It is right near Coba, which we visited (had a great time there) and is called Moulton (I think). We had it all to ourselves.

Maria and Bernardino were so helpful and take care of the house beautifully. They also made us a fabulous dinner. So, again, thank you for sharing your beautiful home. I hope I will get a chance to meet you sometime.


we will return someday

Dear Sloane,

Still suffering from a serious jet lag we would just like to inform you that we spent two very wonderful weeks at Casa Rosa. The house and surroundings really exceeded our expectations. The kids (our two, and our friends’ two) loved the place and thought this was their best vacation ever. And their parents tend to agree ? Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

Maria and Bernardino assisted us in the most efficient and pleasant manner and the three dinners they prepared for us were really wonderful. Gina came along the second day of our stay and was very helpful with some practicalities, and we were also very happy to have the discrete but very pleasant night guard around every night.

We went to Blue Sky twice and that was good every time. But the greatest fun was perhaps a 100 % local restaurant at the main street in Tulum Pueblo, with low Mexican prices, only Mexican guests, LOUD music from a jukebox and a boxing match at the TV. However, since the kids did not like their food (truly Mexican) we only went there once.

The pool was great for the kids, snorkeling between the reef and the beach was beatiful and the kayaks were great fun. We visited several attractions in the area during our stay, including the Tulum ruins (of course) and Coba, both of which Kristin and I visited when we backpacked in Mexico in 1993. We also had a very scenic boat trip on the lagoons and canals in Sinai-Kaan, and an interesting (but dusty) car ride down to Punta Allen. Our friends also went to Chitzen Itza and Ek-Balam. Being a scuba diver I had some ocean dives and several cavern dives in various cenotes at Hidden Worlds. The whole family (and our friends) also went on a cenote snorkeling tour with Hidden Worlds – highly recommendable! We also snorkeled all the way up the Casa Cenote – very beautiful indeed! By the way, one of the cavern dive guides I dove with at Hidden Worlds strongly recommended Lucky Fish Diver Center at Tankah Inn. Cave divers are very safety-focussed so this is probably a good center you may recommend to future guests (it is a small operation and did not have capacity when I asked them, so I ended up having my ocean dives with someone else).

I should mention that the area south of Tulum is of particular significance to our family: During a heavy thunderstorm in June 1902 my great grandfather, who was a captain in the Norwegian merchant navy, lost the masts of the sailing vessel he was commanding. Having no engine the vessel drifted ashore and sunk at the reef outside Bahia de la Ascension. Luckily enough everyone on board survived the incident, but my great grandfather, his wife, their two year old daughter and the entire crew spent two weeks at a desert beach before they were rescued. My grandmother (who wasn’t born then) even wrote a book about this many years later.

Again, we spent a wonderful time at Casa Rosa and I consider it more likely than not that we will return some day. I also do hope you take time to use the house yourselves!

Kind regards,
